Type: Mandarins

Home / Mandarins

Ortanique

Fruit is large and flattened. The area around the style has a small navel and a characteristic aureole. Consistent rind that is difficult to peel.

Essential oils released upon peeling. Tender and juicy pulp that is orange in colour. Seeds are present when pollination occurs.

Late to ripen (March); no significant fruit-drop. Responds well to cold storage and travels well. Vulnerable to splitting. Fruit-drop may occur in low temperatures, especially when Citrange rootstocks are used.

Safor

Thickness between 55 and 60mm, with a flattened form and convex area around the peduncle. Attractive fruit that is easy to peel, with a melting texture and no segment residue. Seedless

Triploid hybrid obtained from controlled pollination conducted in 1996 between a diploid Fortune mandarin as the female parent and a Kara mandarin as the male parent.

Tang Gold

This variety is very productive, easy to peel tendence forward defoliation, especially when Citrange rootstocks are used.

Hybrid originating from a Murcott seed in Morocco. Good quality fruit with a high

sugar content and also a very balanced acid content.

The fruit is sensitive to bufat and if harvesting is greatly delayed, the bark of the fruit discolors.

Hernandina

The fruit is medium in size and slightly flat. Vivid orange rind that is fine and easy to peel. Juicy pulp of high quality. Practically seedless when pollination does not occur.

Mutation of the Clementina Fina variety to have originated in Picassent (Valencia).

Internal ripening occurs almost at the same time as in the Clementina Fina variety, however external maturation or coloring takes place about two months later. Relatively unaffected by rainfall. A suitable variety for regions without early harvests and with low risk of severe frost.

Clemenules

Large and somewhat flattened fruit. Vivid orange rind. Juicy pulp of high quality. Easy to peel and practically seedless.

Harvest during the first campaign (around November-January) after the Oroval variety.

Productive variety that quickly enters production. Fruit relatively resistant to fruit-drop. Mutation of the Clementina Fina variety to have originated in Nules (Castellón)

Arrufatina

The variety is highly productive with fruit of a good size that quickly enters into production.

Early harvest (approximately October-November), internal ripening reached quickly, however external coloration is a month later, which means de-greening is required for an early harvest in most cases (which is normally successful). A good variety for regions with an early harvest.

Mutation of the Clemenules variety to have originated in Vila-real (Castellón).

Marisol

It is a very productive variety and whose sugar levels are usually somewhat low.

Mutation of the Oroval variety to have originated in Betxí (Castellón). It is very similar to the variety from which it comes. Its harvest is very early.

Oronules

Fruit is medium in size. Fine skin. Somewhat flattened in form. Pulp of very high quality. Practically seedless.

Very early variety, with harvest approximately two weeks before the Oroval variety, according to region. Mutation of the Clementina Fina variety to have originated in Nules (Castellón).

Clemenrubí

Fruit thickness superior to Oronules and more uniform, of a very attractive vivid reddish orange colour. Tender pulp with a large quantity of pleasant juice. Consistent rind that is easy to peel. Vulnerable to heatstroke and pitting when overripe.

Rapidly enters production and is more productive than Oronules, with a high density (kg/m3 crown), and therefore highly productivity per Ha when suitably spaced. Very high.

Spontaneous mutation of the Oronules variety discovered around 1994 by Juan Navarro in Loriguilla (Valencia).

Orogrós

It is round and slightly flattened, with a very attractive reddish-orange rind that is relatively soft in consistency and easy to peel. Sugar and acid contents are relatively balanced, making the taste very pleasant. The carpel membranes in the segments are quite leathery, making the residual taste similar to that of the Oronules variety.

Is a new spontaneous mutation of the Oronules clementine variety, with fruit of an appearance and quality similar to the variety of origin although the inside ripens ten days earlier and the colour changes seven days before the Oronules. It was discovered in La Vall d’Uxó (Castellón) (Spain) by Vicente Arnau Martínez. Just like other clementines, the flower is parthenocarpic and self-incompatible, and does not therefore require pollination for fruit-set, nor does it pollinate on its own. When cultivated on its own, the fruit does not have seeds, however if it is near a pollinating variety, it may have seeds or produce them in the other fruit. Commercialisation of this variety is imminent, and due to its conditions of early harvest and high quality, the commercial exit of Clemenrubí® is expected to be prolonged. the commercial exit of Clemenrubí® is expected to be prolonged.
